FD Box, Angled Adapter Provide Reliable Shore Power

Angled Power Adapter


Mar 8, 2016

The last thing boaters want while enjoying marina life is a glitch in shore power. Hubbell engineered its new weatherproof FD Boxes and Angled Adapters to deliver complete electrical reliability and ease of use. Combined, they create the only code-compliant 45 cu. in. solution for 50A, four-wire installations.

Fully UL Listed, the new surface mount FD Boxes accept receptacles from 15A to 30A Twist-Lock®, in duplex or single configurations. It measures 30 cu. in., and is made of high-impact thermoplastic material. The FD Box has options for a 3/4″ or 1″ NPT threaded hub, both tapered to make a watertight seal between the box and the conduit pipe.

Attaching the new 15 cu. in., industry-first, 55-degree Angle Adapter from Hubbell to the FD Box’s face allows ample wiring space for 50A, four-wire installations. This angle design reduces cable strain and helps avert bent prongs when the boater inserts or removes the shore power plug. The Angle Adapter can be installed alone for panel applications, too.

Both the FD Box and Angled Adapter feature stainless steel mounting brackets for proper grounding, and external mounting supports.

Serious Fun at the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta

By Allegra Smith-Herriott

As the plane started its descent, bright blue skies gave way to crystal clear turquoise waters as we skimmed over the famous Maho Beach. Exiting the airport, I was hit with a wall of warm salty air from the northeast trade winds. Nothing compares to arriving in the Caribbean.

From the airport, I headed to the Regatta Village in Port de Plaisance. Wednesday being ‘Day 0’ was registration day of the Regatta. Teams were out on the water to shake out sails, on the docks making last-minute preparations and in the Regatta Village for registration and most importantly picking up their cases of Heineken.
